Kangaroo Silver Coin on Card

2007  Kangaroo Carded

The Kangaroo series produced by the Royal Australian Mint is one of the foundation series of Australian decimal coinage and is widely collected.
There is in my opinion a significant opportunity that has developed in this very popular series.
Take a look at the table I have included below with the relative mintages of the carded Kangaroos since their inception in 1993.

Keeping in mind that collectors may want to collect the entire series the 2007 to the 2009 releases will limit how many sets can actually be collected.

With 72,853 of the 1993 released and a tiny 5,000-8,000 of the 2007 to 2009 cards released the price of these years has increased exponentially is likely to continue this upward trend.

If you are looking to collect Australian coins it may be wise to obtain the 2007 to 2009 Carded Kangaroo coins as soon as possible.

The 2007 Silver Carded Kangaroo as in the photo was the only year that the mint did not release an official version. Private companies, mainly Downies Coins, ordered a quantity from the mint and used their own packaging. The Downies card has become the “official” version but I have seen the coin on other privately issued cards as well, possible from a US dealer.

The 2007 to 2009 cards were also produced in Cupro Nickel. These have the same design and silver appearance so make sure you are purchasing the pure silver version.

I have most of the dates available in my store.
